Greetings from the 2017 Rotary International convention in Atlanta!
Brenda, Mac, Som, John, Justin, Lori and I have been enjoying our time down south as we learn more about the world of Rotary. We have heard from many great speakers including the governor of Georgia, mayor of the city of Atlanta, Bill Gates, Ashton Kutcher and Andrew Young. Our time in Atlanta draws to a close today and we look forward to seeing you this weekend at the UW Arboretum for our service project on Saturday and/or the meeting Sunday evening as we learn about the Tenant Resource Center from Cristina Lor.
Best regards,
2016-2017 President
